I bet Hu's extracted wisdom teeth is hurting his performance.

Really? Would it really affect him that much... Ive never had any teeth pulled so I wouldnt know. Truthfully though, he isnt swinging as hot a bat as he was earlier..but good news is Wang pitched 7 innings of 1 run ball today. 69 out of 98 for strikes and a 2 to 1 ground out/flyout ratio 12-6. Much better than last time when his ground out/flyout ratio was just about even... i think it was 6-5..not sure though. Wang should get the W today though, only one inning left and yankz are up 5

Yankees won 7-1 and Wong only gave up 1 run in 7 innings of work including 3 K's. He is now 13-5!!
